Many hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) providers operate independently from hospitals, whether in freestanding clinics,
physician offices, wellness centers, or commercial buildings. Patients travel to the facility each day for treatment.
Independent HBOT clinics vary widely in the diseases and conditions they treat, the hyperbaric equipment they use,
and the kinds of clinical and technical staff they employ.
Most independent HBOT clinics are privately owned not-for-profit or for-profit corporations or limited liability companies.
Medical directors typically own and operate such enterprises, sometimes in partnership with staff physicians or other investors.
